We are intent on selling our home in Pontllanfraith and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Pontllanfraith conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers are using a factory type conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Pontllanfraith. We have lived in Pontllanfraith for six years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
I have a 4 bedroom Georgian house in Pontllanfraith. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Barclays . I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Pontllanfraith and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who completed the work.
How does conveyancing in Pontllanfraith differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Pontllanfraith come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because house builders in Pontllanfraith typically acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Pontllanfraith or who has acted in the same development.
I need to find a conveyancing solicitor for purchase conveyancing in Pontllanfraith. I've land on a web site which looks to be the perfect offering If it is possible to get all formalities completed via web that would be preferable. Should I be concerned? What should out be looking out for?
As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
I see that you have a post code search directory identifying firms on the lender conveyancing panel. Do Pontllanfraith conveyancing companies pay you a referral fee if I instruct them for my own conveyancing?
We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the lender conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to the any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Pontllanfraith.
